Lyndon Slewidge is 2nd best actually. Lauren Hart from Philly is the hands down the best anthem singer in the NHL. If you ever listen to her do God Bless America you'd see just how talented of a singer she is. Just imagine hearing that in game 7 of a cup final from Philly would send shivers down your spine.
Speaking of Lyndon does anyone know why they changed the the Canada and American anthems before he sings? The old background music used to give me chills hearing them especially in the playoffs. I didn't like how now it's Lyndon singing with no background music.
My favourite by far is Lauren Hart of Philly, maybe it's partly because she sings God Bless America which is different from everywhere else, but she is just a great singer who also happens to be attractive, the total package. The Kate Smith connection is also pretty cool, definetly unique.
I always liked the way they sang the last line of the US anthem in Chicago. This guy and Lyndon are the best.
I don't think Laurent Hart is that amazing, she's good but not in the same class as Lyndon of the Chicago guy. Vancouver guy is good and Boston's Rene Rancourt is average but honestly, I like his fist pump.
Edmonton guy is horrible, Mtl and Toronto are forgettable. Actually, I think Mtl should simply put a clip of Roger Doucet on their big ass jumbo screen. It would be better than the singing toupet that's currently holding that gig.
